1 Introduction
The CLEARjet printers are controlled using a special command language based on
ASCII characters. This command set allows using of all features and options of
CLEARjet printers.
The CX-one printer provides an USB- and two RS 232-Interfaces for communication.
A printer driver for Windows Operating Systems is available.
The CLEARjet “ESCAPE” sequences can be used directly to control the CX-one
printer from computers with different or no Operating Systems.
You can find descriptions of interface-connectors, settings for interface parameters
and instructions for operation in the User Manual and OEM Manual.
1.1 Serial Interfaces
The CX-one printer provides 3 Interfaces for communication:
USB
for printer controlling functions
RS 232 - Host
for printer controlling functions
RS 232 - Chip
for communication with optional chip interfaces
In general USB and RS 232 - Host interfaces can be used arbitrary.
Command execution is identical, independent of the used Interface.
Note: Use only one interface (USB or RS 232 - Host) to send printer-commands or
data.
Concurrent use of both interfaces is not allowed (the printer will mix commands
received from USB and RS 232 - Host and generate unpredictable results)!
We recommend to use the CLEARjet Active CX SDK for easy generation of customer
specific application programs.
CLEARjet Active CX SDK includes all functions for encoding of MAG-stripe cards
and smart cards, printing of all Windows fonts, photos and graphics. In addition
numerous control functions to perform all other device functionality are included as
well.

1.1.1 Operating RS 232 - Interface
A correct serial communication between Host and printer is only granted by using
serial interface cables including RTS / CTS Hardware-handshake and a handshakeoperating Host computer.
Note: While the printer is processing (printing / erasing) the handshake is active.
The printer won’t be able to respond to brief status requests.
Communication activity at the USB interface will also cause activation of the RS 232 Handshake.
1.2 Status Request (Polling)
The minimum delay for a brief status response aggregates to 10 ms. Any further brief
status request within this delay is ignored.
Recommended delay between status commands: min. 100 ms
Note: Shorter delays may cause loss of data or malfunction.
1.3 CX-one Operation
The following operations are used for a typical card-cycle:
enable printer command ⇒ the printer is ready to take a card
insert a card ⇒ printer moves card to the chip-reader position
data transaction to the chip
Host transmits print-data to the printer
erase- and print cycle is processed
printer ejects card

The following source code (C++) shows a typical sequence using
CLEARjet Active CX SDK:
Print a label to the card:
// Define a variable for the status of transport the commands
long lRet = 0;
// Select the font size with wich you want to print
lRet += m_ctrlCXone.SelectFontSize( 3 ); // See printer manual
for fontsize parameter
// Set coordinates of the first textline
lRet += m_ctrlCXone.PrintPosX( 20 );
lRet += m_ctrlCXone.PrintPosY( 850 );
// Print first line
lRet += m_ctrlCXone.PrintText( "Phone", false ); // "false"
indicates that more lines follow
// Set coordinates of the second textline
lRet += m_ctrlCXone.PrintPosX( 40 );
lRet += m_ctrlCXone.PrintPosY( 650 );
// Print second line second part
lRet += m_ctrlCXone.PrintText( "Fax", true ); // "true"
indicates that no more lines follow
// Now the printer starts printing on the card
// Check if any command does not work
if( lRet )
{
// General transport error of the command
MessageBox( "Can't send the command", "Error" );
return;
}

1.4 Use of CX-one Printer Driver
Follow the CX-one Setup Instructions for Printer Driver to correctly install the printer
driver and/or USB driver.
In general the printer driver is designed to operate as a standard driver for Windows
operating systems. The CLEARjet printer driver is a plain printer driver for executing
of print-jobs only.
It includes no additional functions like MAG-Encoding, Chip-reading etc.
We recommend to use the CLEARjet Active CX SDK for easy generation of customer
specific application programs.
CLEARjet Active CX SDK includes all functions for encoding of magstripe cards and
smart cards, printing of all Windows fonts, photos and graphics. In addition numerous
control functions to perform all other device functionality are included as well.
Nevertheless, under certain conditions the printer driver can work in combination with
additional control software.
1.4.1 General procedure to combine driver and control functions
To allow mixing of control functions and Windows driver and to avoid data mismatch
pay attention to the following points:
1. In most applications the first step is encoding of data media (MAG-stripe,
Chip, RF-Chip…).
Please use only tested functions of the appropriate ESC-command set in
combination with the Windows driver (see chapter 1.4.3)
2. Make sure that this processes are finished completely before starting the
Windows driver job. Be careful: The printer may need different execution time
depending on used function-type.
3. Start the Windows printer job
4. The Windows Operating System needs several time to really transmit the data
to the printer (via USB or RS 232 - Port).
To prevent data mismatch the application software must wait after starting the
printer driver until the data are really sent to the printer!
5. Execute commands for the next card job or status requests only if the print-job
has been finished before.
Note: Use only one interface (USB or RS 232 - Host) to send printer-commands or
data.
Concurrent use of both interfaces is not allowed (the printer will mix commands
received from USB and RS 232 - Host and generate unpredictable results)!

1.4.2 Sample Program
Use this or a similar program to proceed after printing (if the Windows driver was
used).
The following steps must be executed for requesting the printer status:
1. Create a handle of the printer with the function "OpenPrinter".
2. Check existing print jobs for the CLEARjet printer with the function
"EnumJobs"
3. This function returns the count of existing print jobs in the queue.
4. If the return value is "0" execution of printer commands (e.g. status requests)
is allowed.
Sample code:
============
HANDLE hPrinter;
// Open printer
if (OpenPrinter ("CX-one", &hPrinter, NULL))
{
while (true)
{
DWORD dwNeeded = 0;
DWORD dwReturned = 0;
// is there a printjob in the queue
if (EnumJobs (hPrinter, 0, 1, 1, NULL, 0, &dwNeeded,
&dwReturned))
{
// one or more jobs
if (dwNeeded == 0)
break;
else
Sleep (200);
}
}
// close printer
ClosePrinter (hPrinter);
// wait for data send via usb
Sleep (200);
}

In normal operating mode the printer-unit is controlled via the interface
RS 232 - HOST and the chipreader via RS 232 - CHIP.
With the command <ESC>6 the "transparent mode" is activated.
The HOST interface path is switched from the printer to the chipreader.
To switch back the interface path to the normal operating mode, use the
command <ESC>7PRINTER
Note: For hardware-details see CX-one OEM-Manual.

3 Special Printer-Modes
The printer detects several error-situations and is automatically switched to the
corresponding error mode.
There are 3 different error types:
3.1 Fatal error
All LEDs are flashing periodically and printer stops working.
In this mode the printer accepts and responds to 4 commands only:
<ESC>r1,<ESC>r2
Hardware Reset
<SUB>
Brief Status
<ESC>$E
Read ERROR number
3.2 Non fatal error
Error is not indicated, but the command <ESC>$E returns an error number. This kind
of error indicates situations where the printer works well but the last operation was
performed incorrectly (magnet-encoding errors, empty hopper ...)
For more details see the command “ERROR Code”.
3.3 Heat-up mode
Green LED is flashing periodically and the response to the brief status (<SUB>) is
0xFF (all bits are set).
This indicates that the printer is in heat-up mode after booting or powering up.
Wait until heat-up is finished!
3.4 Cleaning Mode
After detecting a CLEARjet Cleaning card the printer automatically performs a
cleaning procedure and the response to the brief status (<SUB>) is 0xFF (all bits are
set).
Wait until heat-up after cleaning procedure is finished.
